The Conjuring 2 (2016)…A Highly Anticipated Sequel That Doesn’t Quite Measure Up

The Conjuring 2, perhaps the most anticipated horror film of the year is, admittedly, one of those movies that made me do my fangirl happy dance when it was first announced. Let’s face it, the original Conjuring was damn near perfect, an undeniably epic horror masterwork that combined director James Wan’s ever evolving visual style with powerhouse performances by a phenomenally … Keep Reading…

Felicia’s Reviews: Krampus (2015)

Inspired by ancient European folklore, the titular villain in Krampus is a humongous horned monster who torments naughty children and anyone else in its path who forsakes holiday traditions. Interesting concept… The film itself features a dysfunctional family’s festive antics, and the young boy Max (Emjay Anthony) who loses faith in the holidays, and this loss of innocence is the … Keep Reading…

The Ghosts of the Past Come Knocking in Don’t Look in the Basement 2 (2015)

It has been 42 years since S.F. Brownrigg’s drive-in classic Don’t Look in the Basement was released, and in all that time, the gritty tale of a small, experimental asylum and the lost souls that reside within has yet to lose its edge. Rough and unmistakably indie, the original Don’t is a rare gem of 70’s low budget horror and, although often … Keep Reading…

Crimson Peak (2015)…Del Toro Delivers a Hauntingly Gorgeous but Unsatisfying Fable

There is not one moment during Guillermo del Toro’s sumptuous gothic ghost story Crimson Peak, when we are not fully aware that we are witnessing the work of a master of the craft. Everything, from the stunning set designs to the opulent costumes to the phenomenal, first rate cast speak volumes about del Toro’s ability to weave the intricate worlds of his own imagining … Keep Reading…

Horror Quickie: Last Shift (2014)

Watching horror movies ain’t always a cake-walk. Some of these flicks give real meaning to the term unbearably bad (I’m looking at you Gnome Alone), so it’s always fan-fucking-tastic when a movie I was expecting to blow actually ends up being pretty good. I’m not exactly sure why I was expecting Last Shift to be terrible, maybe the poster, maybe because police movies tend … Keep Reading…

Felicia’s Reviews: The Green Inferno

Privileged New York college student Justine (Lorenza Izzo) finds herself seeking social media driven activism on her campus after meeting student activist Alejandro (Ariel Levy). While on a hunger strike on behalf of underpaid janitors, Justine joins the extremely obnoxious fellow activist on his next uninformed project, which is to save the Amazon. Original right? Well think of your own … Keep Reading…

Cooties (2014)…A Smart, Laugh Out-Loud Horror Comedy Not to Be Missed

Ahhh, children…they’re something ain’t they… On a good day, they can be darling, adorable little angels from the sunniest part of sweet, sweet heaven. On a bad day…well, on a bad day kids can be evil, merciless devils from the deepest, darkest bowels of burning, stinky hell…and I say that in the nicest way possible. Before you assume I hate children … Keep Reading…

Felicia’s Reviews: The Visit (2015)

The Visit marks writer-director M.Night Shyamalan‘s return to the big screen with a genuinely good movie. This is after being responsible for some of the most wretchedly lacklustre big screen attempts in recent memory; After Earth, The Happening and The Last Airbender to name just a few. This film however packs a punch and perfectly walks the line between being deliciously horrifying and … Keep Reading…

Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008)…A Blood-Drenched Musical Blast

I have a dirty little secret to share… A secret so shameful it has been festering in the darkest corners of my soul since I was a wee horror chicklet. …I can no longer hide the truth. I have always…ALWAYS…loved…musicals. Well, I guess that really wasn’t as shameful as I implied, but my fucked up obsession with musicals (we’re talking … Keep Reading…

Jeffrey Combs Plays a Twisted Game in Would You Rather (2012)

To say that I am slightly obsessed with the many films of horror god Jeffrey Combs is, admittedly, putting it lightly. Few actors are as truly gifted and tragically underrated as the prolific star of such classic as Re-Animator, From Beyond and The Frighteners (which is my personal favorite Combs performance…although whether or not this one is a classic is up … Keep Reading…
